Just over 50 years ago Knoll unveiled the Pedestal Collection of tulip dining tables by Eero Saarinen, known today as the “Tulip Collection“, which has evolved into a symbol of mid century modern furniture design and a staple in the Knoll design legacy. In that time the collection has become the most well know modern oval and round dining table series in laminate, marble, granite or veneer. For the 50th anniversary of this iconic collection, Knoll is adding a platinum base finish and reintroducing rosewood and teak table tops which will be a permanent addition to the line. All tulip pieces ordered during the anniversary year will carry a special commemorative medallion and special certificate of authenticity. These are wonderful pieces to have in a home and do exceptionally well in a small space such as an apartment or flat.
